Local Students Have Opportunity to Apply for Scholarships
by Cindy Bonior
The Fremont Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with Dollars for Scholars to distribute $8,000 in scholarships to local high school students this spring.
Students who are interested in applying for the scholarships, and reside in the communities of Fremont, Milpitas, Newark, Sunol or Union City, can get an application from their high school counselor or online at the Chamber Web site at: www.fremontbusiness.com.
Only students who are planning to continue to postsecondary education are qualified to apply. Applications must be returned to the Fremont Chamber of Commerce by March 11. These scholarships are available for high school students graduating with the class of 2005.
Dollars for Scholars is a non-profit volunteer organization that provides local students with financial and academic assistance to help them pursue postsecondary education. Last year, Dollars for Scholars chapters raised more than $57.4 million, and awarded scholarships to more than 34,000 students.

Its mission is to promote, support and enhance a positive business environment.
